Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sawallisch's "Heldenleben" takes its place as one of the most distinguished modern readings of this most extrovert of the Strauss symphonic poems... The silken Philadelphia strings are totally in their musical and sonic element in such sections as "The Hero's Works of Peace."
